when i was a kid, if you wouldn't eat your veggies, my dad would hit it with a little worcestershire sauce and suddenly they weren't so bad. i can't eat lima beans without a splash until this day.
we would also go into the garden with a bottle instead of a salt shaker and raid the tomato plants.
I love tomatoes, and particularly love them splashed with Balsamic vinegar. I think I will try them with Wooster!

Wooster-sheer here, too. I use it in meatloaf and meatballs and some soups and stews. Never thought of putting it on tomatoes. I'm going to try that.

Addie, if you look at a map of southeastern Virginia, you'll see lots of familiar place names. Some of the first European explorers found and named towns, rivers, etc., here, including the Elizabeth River right down the street from me.

I always think of Jennifer and Clarissa! "Dear old Wooster sauce!"

We always called it Lee & Perrins, accept no substitutes!

I use it in most any ground beef recipe and many things that use tomato juice or ketchup, anything that needs an extra oomph!

The Two Fat Ladies! (I'm not being offensive everyone, it was the name of a cooking show in the UK).

And yes, Lee & Perrins.

It seems to me that instead of watching it sit, like an ugly sister at the side of the room, I should ask it to dance?

(We have had a run of Jane Austen on TV lately so apologies for this!)

I've always pronounced it woosta-sheer. I once had a co-worker who lived in Worcester UK. He always called it "our sauce."

Here at Casa de Hoot, we call it what's this here sauce, as the Princess does.
I use it on meats, in marinades, soups, stews, and just a splash in a Bloody Mary.
The preferred brand is Lea & Perrins.

Lea & Perrins. Quite right. (I just checked my current bottle and it is still usable!)

I am very glad I started this thread - I am going to start using my "Wooster Sauce" in future!

Oops, my fault!
